For the sake of posterity, you know, for when she's five and she asks me, "Mommy, what was the first word I ever said?" I thought I'd keep a record of Naiya's language development. We're signing basic ASL signs to her pretty consistently and starting back in September, she exhibited her first comprehension and contextually correct usage of language. I also talk to her incessantly, mostly to keep myself company. Perhaps this will help with her acquisition as well.
first sign: "finished" or "all done"
first spoken word: "bye bye" (along with a wave)
sign only: "milk"
say & sign: "duck"
say only: "ball, hot"

Okay, I didn’t actually build these. I’ve seen them in many a Waldorf classroom and I drew up a pattern and took it over to Tim’s house so he could “help me” build them. Of course, he just built them and I looked on in awe. I’m not a huge fan of power tools.
